Good DogBy AnnieRobertson (19 reviews) , 27 Jun 2012
[Highly rated reviewer]Wow, this was a surprise, not only because Id forgotten that it was on my high priority list, but it was great. Really great.
My husband decided not to watch it as I nearly choked myself crying when I watched Haatchi but it was his loss. I did have a slight tear in my eye at one point but then Im a softy for dogs, says she typing away with a gorgeous Westie sleeping at my feet!
This was funny, a good (true) story and a bit of romance but mainly about how the dog affected everyone's lives in the comunity.
Well worth a watch.

Funny but sadBy TimmyLuna (2 reviews) , 26 Oct 2013A brilliant, funny and sad film that had me in tears. Had never heard of it but so glad I watched it.
A little gem of a film!By V1X (1 review) , 05 Oct 2013I thoroughly enjoyed this film - a surprising little gem. My expectations weren't particularly high which might have influenced my overall opinion but it is a great feel good film with a poignant message. Delivered in an interesting way that really captured what life in the North West of Australia must have been like in the 70s and 80s. Give it a go.
More Than a Dog StoryBy Lewishamguy (27 reviews) , 13 Aug 2013This true story of Red Dog recalls the true story of the famous Japanese dog, Hachiko, who waited for years for his dead master at Shibuya Station in Tokyo. Red Dog went all over Western Australia searching for his master. So, besides being a tale of canine loyalty, this film gets us into the gritty life of Outback Australia, including especially communities of workers in the massive mining industry. Very realistic, very gripping.
Dog-gone dull.By a customer , 28 Jul 2013You probably have to be a dog lover...a big dog lover...to get anything from this dull and rather banal docu-film about a dog with no real personality. Sorry but I found it very dreary and dull.
Good Aussie film.By Zebras22 (116 reviews) , 20 May 2013I did not think i would like this film and it turned out to be very entertaining. Well acted and it has some comic touches. A feel good movie and well worth the watch.
